Saginaw Students Get Special ‘Passports’ To Learn Out of Classroom – The Good News
The goal is to get kids out of the classroom and into the real world.
Kids at Herig Elementary in Saginaw got their own special 'passports' which will allow them to visit off-campus STEM locations. The superintendent says that they are trying to put an emphasis on learning, technology and science.
They're also trying to target kids who are lower-income, who may not be able to visit museums and other educational locations.
They hope to hand out anywhere from 17,000 to 20,000 passports to kids from eight different counties. The passports will include discounted and sometimes free admission to local museums, zoos, etc.
